The JavaScript TextArea control is a fundamental input element in web development that allows users to input multiple lines of text within a designated area, such as comments, messages, or other lengthy content. This control is an extended version of the HTML text area element, featuring clear icons, a floating label, various sizing options, validation states, and more.

Floating Label

Improve the user experience with our floating label feature. The label transitions elegantly above the text area when users start typing.

Right-to-left (RTL) rendering

The JavaScript TextArea control supports right-to-left (RTL) rendering. Users can change the text direction and layout from right to left. This improvement enhances user experience and accessibility for users of RTL languages.

Maximum length

Enforce input restrictions using the maximum length feature. By setting a character limit, you can prevent users from entering excessive text, ensuring data integrity and optimizing database storage.

Rows and columns count

Easily customize the dimensions of your text area by specifying the desired number of rows and columns so that it fits seamlessly into any application layout.

Built-in themes

The JavaScript TextArea control has several built-in themes such as Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), Tailwind CSS, Fluent, and high contrast. Users can customize any of these built-in themes or create new themes by overriding Sass variables or using our Theme Studio application.

Developer-friendly APIs

Developers can control the appearance and behaviors of the TextArea in JavaScript, including its floating label, using a rich set of APIs.

Other supported frameworks
